    My Grandma's Tomatoes!

    When we would visit my grandma in Georgia, I can remember her making stewed tomatoes. They were the best stewed tomatoes I have ever tasted. Seriously, I have yet to taste stewed tomatoes that matched my grandmother's. Maybe my love for her made me a bit biased, adding more...

    I Ate All The Tomatoes

    My dad had a garden at the end of the driveway. He had tomatoes, squash, peppers, sometimes cantaloupes, and watermelons- and sunflowers one year! I'd grab a cup from the kitchen, hop on my bike, and ride to the garden to fill up my cup with cherry tomatoes. Then, I'd ride...

    Yeah Buddy, My Daddy Could Grow 'em

    There are few scents like the zingy, vibrant aroma of fresh, warm, green and red, or pink and yellow striped tomatoes ripening on the vine in the hot mountain sunshine. Their life force literally exploded, overwhelming my Dads country garden, making me absolutely giddy as a girl...

    Especially With Other Food

    It's actually weird because I used to hate tomatoes when I was really little, because they were sloppy and would drip everywhere. Well, when I grew up a bit I started liking a lot of foods that I didn't like before, so I also liked tomatoes more. Tomatoes are AMAZING! I love the...

    Yay Tomatoes, Woohoo!

    I think there was a time when I didn't like tomatoes, but if there was, I don't remember it. As far back as I can remember, I've loved fresh tomatoes. And tomato-based soups and sauces. I used to dislike canned tomatoes, but I like them well enough now. I don't know enough...

    I Have Yet to Meet a Tomato That I Dont Like

    Fried green, fresh off the vine, canned, in soups..... i like tomatoes, they are tasty. What else can i say about them? When I was growing up, my dad would plant cherry tomatoes and big tomatoes in the back yard. They rarely ever made it into the house.

    They are awesome everywhere. Raw, fried, complementing another dish whatever. They taste superb and look superb. I'm sad they're getting too costly though.

    As a Child,

    I use to absolutely despise Tomatoes. Now I enjoy them immensely Fresh tomatoes can go with just about any meal, but I'd have to say the sun-dried variety are my favorite. Fun fact: The US Supreme Court ruled in Nix v. Hedden (1893) that the tomato is classified as a vegetable...

    Home Grown Tomatoes

    from John Denver. "There is nothing like true love and home grown tomatoes".  Up here in Oregon, tomatoes come later.  We are just getting into the season.  And there is nothing like home grown tomatoes.
